Labor Day weekend has Armor visiting Airpower Museum

While offering flight experiences in World War II fighters and bombers, the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport will be welcoming an armored column from the Museum of American Armor during Airpower ceremonies that pay tribute to the nearly 50,000 people who once reported to work at Grumman and Republic Aviation.

Throughout the weekend historic aircraft will be offering flight experiences as well including a B-17 Flying Fortress, a B-24 Liberator bomber, a rare two seat P-51 Mustang, a C-47 D-Day Airborne transport and other aircraft that help tell the story of America’s work force when it was at the heart of the Arsenal of Democracy. Armored vehicles including the M8 Greyhound and the M20 general command car from the Museum of American Armor will be in motion, living historians will present displays and flyby will be conducted that honors those Americans still on active duty.

The Museum of American Armor invites its visitors and friends to visit Airpower when gates are open Friday, August 29th through Monday, September 1st between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Airpower admission is $15 adults, $10 seniors over 65 and veterans, $7 children 4-12.
